Encore DVD and 24p searched everywhere

I have searched everywhere on the net and on this board for some kind of information on Adobe Encore DVD and wether or not it can handle 24p. I love Encore for its powerful menuing system, especially with photoshop. I also love 24p, and the fact that A)It looks better, B)Takes less room on dvd which means higher bitrate. So can anyone shed some light on putting 24p into Encore. I would be rendering the mpeg2 from vegas. PLEASE HELp. Thanks

I looked around the Adobe Forums a bit and it seems that it does
support it as long as you can feed it 24p MPEG files (which Vegas
can create).

Do a search on the Adobe Encore forum on '24p'

Well it looks like Encore doesnt. I just rendered out a 24p clip from Vegas in MainConcept MPEG2 video format. I made sure that the clip was 24fps and not 23.976/23.98. When I brought the clip into Encore it immediately thought I was using a 23.976 clip, and then asked me to transcode; which would further reduce quality and mess up frame rates. WHAT TO I DO???

The clip should be 23.976 fps. Not exactly 24 fps. If you still have
problems with a 23.976 fps mpeg2 then I suggest signing up by
Adobe and asking the question on their Encore forum. I doubt
many here have experience with 24p MPEG2 movies in Encore.

It should be 23.976fps with 3:2 pulldown, I believe. It also might need to be an elementary stream (see the last tab in the settings).

You're welcome!

It produces a pure MPEG-2 video stream with no audio multiplexing. Also the file extension is .m2v instead of .mpg. Beyond that I really don't know what it does, just that it works for Maestro, and apparently for Encore as well. :)

Now all I need to figure out is if I can generate 24p compliant mpeg's from Canopus Procoder that work with Encore.
